Learn how to support your employees and position yourself as a menopause friendly organisation with our Menopause Awareness Training packages.
What is Menopause Awareness Training?
Menopause is fast becoming the next critical strategy development for any business serious about employee engagement and staff welfare. Previously a taboo topic, the conversation has been silently growing and now businesses all over the UK are looking at implementing Menopause Workplace Policies that support female team members.
In the past, the Menopause has often been ridiculed or pushed aside as ‘women’s issues,’ but we are beginning to see a shift in societal views. Channel 4 are just one of the latest workplaces to introduce Menopause friendly policies for staff, and lots more others are waking up to just how much this major hormonal change can affect women in their daily lives – and affect a business’s bottom line.
10% of menopausal women leave the workplace due to severe symptoms.
The main aim of our Menopause workplace training sessions is to equip your employees or leaders with non-biased, evidence based facts, teaching them more about the Menopause and how this affects women – and their colleagues – at work. We will provide information on how not tackling key Menopause issues can impact your organisation and how you can prevent this, leading to:
• Improved productivity
• Decreased absences
• Happier, healthier staff
• Increased engagement
What will we cover?
We provide engaging training solutions which help your business learn more about the Menopause and how to support employees going through what can be a difficult and unrelenting experience. We ensure our training sessions are interesting and interactive and that we foster an environment that encourages people to be open and understanding about sensitive issues.
As part of our training packages, we will also show how you can use your new Menopause knowledge and implement staff-friendly solutions in your workplace, for example, appointing Menopause Champions or creating dedicated support groups.

• What the Menopause is and how it can affect women at work
